Rogue Shooter: The FPS Roguelke kaufen

 

Über dieses Spiel

First-person shooters and roguelikes have finally tied the knot! Their offspring, ROGUE SHOOTER, tasks you with navigating a space station run amok. Blast aliens and kick robots in the face as you traverse each level; collecting weapons and gaining experience along the way. How far will you go when death lurks around every corner? Will you reach the 100th level and destroy the source of the station’s corruption? Probably not, but it’s worth a try.

GAME FEATURES:
  • Fast-paced and challenging gameplay!
  • More guns than you can shake a stick at! We wish you would stop shaking it though, it’s making us nervous.
  • Level up and pick from the finest perks this side of the Mississippi!
  • High score charts track your best attempts. Brag to your friends about yours, they surely won’t hate you for it!
  • Play mini-games to hack into secure computers. Just like real hacking!
  • You can battle with robots, aliens, and giant carnivorous plants! You can also battle with your low self-esteem and crippling alcoholism, but those aren’t included in this game.
  • Unlock backgrounds, difficulties and enemy weaknesses.

Considering i got this for essentially free (long story), the £1.20 i payed was well worth it. There is some wierd ♥♥♥ guns, like a shotty trident and a dog launcher? Overall, Id say wait until its on sale as the devs have sadly stopped supporting it D: Eitherway, id highly reccomend this to anyone :D

Devs are dead, but it's a good cheap game.

Each gun has a good distinct purpose, but some are just kind of redundant to use (e.g Charger Rifle, Dual Revolvers, Pistol). Stims and tools are good though, except for maybe Vigilance (unless you REALLY don't want to do a floor?)

Skillful movement and shooting is a suitable substitute for bad gear, high skill and good gear combined The game is good at emphasizing this, most enemy attacks are either melee or modestly quick projectiles.

I dislike progression in general unless it's purely for cosmetic purposes, and this game is no exception. In my opinion, the best early game perks are unaccessible until you've got a few games under your belt, and inventory space is very limited until about the point where you understand the game. There's also a %damage and %health boost you get from upgrade points but they really don't matter much, except they kinda do a little bit. You know, the whole 50% at max thing.

I guess the character selection progression is fine, though, and I think that the enemy weaknesses should be exploitable even before you unlock their weakness with Intel. Also, recipes should be unlocked from the beginning.

On an end note, don't tab out of this game without saving and exiting first. This breaks the game.

It's a very fun game all in all, akin to something more like an old school shooter, there's only horizontal aiming, which feels weird at first since you do use the mouse to aim and shoot, but you will quickly set into this small obstacle. The game itself is actually very fun and can be pretty addicting. It incorporates elements of old school shooters with a few elements of modern shooters (reloading, only equipping two weapons at a time) that meld nicely together. The best part (and the selling factor to me) is how the game so successfully incorporates elements of traditional rogue-lites. Many things you'd expect from the genre is here- Permadeath with the ability of permanent stat upgrades, item randomization, stage randomization, and of course the ability to make the game unforgivingly difficult if you please, wrapped up in a first-person-shooter styling. Finish all that off with some simple yet pleasing graphics, and a large dose of humor (I couldn't help but chuckle to learn Strong Throngs long to belong and wear thongs) and you have a surprisingly fun game for such a low price.
If you like traditional shooters and/or roguelikes, I'd highly recommend picking this entertaining game up.

increasingly boring.

When you first get it you think to yourself "this games all right"
The next day you wake up turn it on and it just doesnt seem as fun.
one week later you will just forget its there and never play it again and if you do you wont believe that only a week ago you actually liked it.

I got this game a long time ago, and with 22 hours played I would like to think I have my fair share of experience within it. This review is meant to help you understand the concept behind this game.
The main goal of this game is to progress onto the next wave of monsters (or floor). It can be either very frustrating or very fun. I personally enjoyed the light struggle to move on.
Updates, as the devoloper of this game has recently stated, there are not many updates to this game and there is practically no reason to expect one or any coming anytime soon.
Items, and upgrades. In this game you have to upgrade your skills and powers to stay in tune with what floor you are on. There are also a small group of very cool sounding items with their own awesome names.
That concludes this review.

Really neat, funny, old school feeling game. This shooter is plucked straight out of the 90s and is a nice throwback to then. There are quite a few different characters and things to upgrade/discover, though this game could really use a tutorial!

Whatever you do, please: BUY IT.
It is definitely worth the price. Rogue Shooter basically takes the best parts of several genres: FPS, RPG, roguelike - and puts them together to create a masterpiece. Tons of different weapons, unlockables, enemies, consumable items and mimes - 11/10.

If you're really into older FPS games such as Doom, Blood, or DN3D, I honestly suggest Rogue Shooter to you. Bonus points if you're also into the "roguelike" genre in general. There's a lot of content here for the price, and while some things like hit detection and difficulty can bee "odd" at times, this game provides a solid FPS/Roguelike experience. Plus, there's a shotgun flail. 8.5/10

Klare Empfehlung!

Ich bin ja ein großer Freund von Roguelikes, besonders wenn diese mit anderen Genres kombiniert werden.
Hab schon 2 Egoshooter-Roguelikes probiert, die mir aber nicht mirklich gefielen.
Aber dieses Spiel hebt diesen Genremix in ein helles Licht! :)

Es lehnt von der Grafik her sehr stark an die älteren Spiele "Chex Quest" und "Wolfenstein 3D", und vom Spilstil kommt noch "Duke Nukem" mit dem mächtigen Tritt hinzu!
Es gibt unmengen an Zeug freizuschalten (neue Klassen, Perks, Gegnerschwächen, etc...).
Man kann verschiedene Gegenstände kombinieren und man muss seine Ausrüstung auch hin und wieder reparieren.
Zudem gibt es noch mehrere Schwierigkeitsgrade und ein Tutorial, sodass man einen leichten Einstieg hat.
Und was für mich ein wichtiger Punkt ist > Die Musik!
Oh Gott ist die Musik catchy und treibend! *-*

Ich bin wahnsinnig froh, diese Neuerscheinung gleich gefunden zu haben! :3
Bis 1. Mai für 5,-€, aber das Spiel wäre mir auch die 10,-€ Vollpreis wert gewesen. :)

Atrocious music, hilariously bad graphics, and a trailer that seems half-baked... Is it all intentional? Yes, quite possibly. I decided to pick this up particularly because of it's mid 90's "shareware" graphics and I was pleasantly surprised to find a halfway decent game underneath. If you grew up playing games like Blood, Blake Stone, Shadow Warrior, Rise of the Triad, or any of those first person DOS games, you'll feel right at home.

Excellent roguelike design, lots of interesting unlockables and persistence, tons of stuff to see and experience, quaint set of humor, and genre appropriate difficulty make this ruddy shooter worth the purchase and the time involved. ...Just make sure to mute the music early.

Let's get this out of the way first: this game isn't for everyone. If you don't like old school (and I mean, Doom/Quake era) gameplay and hardcore randomization, then you shouldn't buy this game. That being said, if you enjoy either/both or are open minded, this could be right up your alley.

Rogue Shooter blends rogue-like elements (permadeath, random levels/items) with gunplay from the shooters of yore. It does have a couple of technical limitations (the lack of a volume slider, locked resolution, and oddball fullscreen modes), but the gameplay more than makes up for it. Weapons feel satisfying and varied, enemies are diverse, and levels (while basic) are never quite the same. Furthermore, the higher difficulties are challenging and give you a good space to grow into as you graduate from noob to veteran.

If you're a fan of modern roguelike hybrids, classic shooters, or just plain old innovative games, then Rogue Shooter is worth a shot. Don't take my word for it-check out the demo and see for yourself.

First, download the demo. If it doesn't even boot up, then don't buy the game. Many people bought the game when it couldn't even run on their PC.

The developer also disappeared off the radar, so don't expect a fix any time soon.

For those of you who enjoyed classic shooters, this is a treat. It has retro-borderlands style graphics and the loot mechanics are comparable to that of your basic roguelike game.

Pick your background (prisoner, scientist etc., and there are a LOT!) which essentially defines what you start with in your inventory. You move up randomly generated floors and find loot and kill monsters for exp. When you level, you can unlock a perk (and there are quite a bit to choose from). You can combine materials that you find to create anything from useful items to experimental syringes that yield random buffs/debuffs.

Movement is different than most first person games, whereas you cannot look up or down, but only left and right. You manage your inventory in real time (you'll be doing this quite a bit considering all the items you'll be picking up). You'll also be hacking (mouse cursor dodging mini-game) datapads in real time too so best to clear the floor of enemies before attempting this. You get a random amount of credits (possibly other rewards) for successful hacking attempts.

When you die, you start over, but the 'intel' acquired is persistent. You acquire more and more intel as you replay the game more and more, and with more intel comes more unlockables whether that's more available perks, backgrounds and enemies.

My only gripe is that there are many dead ends, but because you move quite fast (what with the fast paced gameplay), it's negligible.
[Edit] The music also does not loop, so if you're on a floor for some time clearing enemies or hacking datapads, then you'll notice the music will eventually cut out and you'll be left alone in silence.

For the current sale price ($4.99) this game is more than worth it. If you're a fan of roguelike games and enjoyed classic shooters like Duke Nukem and Quake, you'll definitely be getting your money's worth.

I actually enjoyed this game for what it's worth, but I can't recommend buying it. The developer, Hippomancer, has left the game in an unplayable state for some and a buggy mess for others, myself included in the latter. There were two patches in the first three weeks after the game was released, and then nothing. All attempts to contact the dev via the forums, the contact page on his website, or his twitter account have gone unanswererd.

The game has not been updated since May of 2014. The game was released in April of 2014. It is very clearly abandonware. Don't support devs who don't support their own games.

A real shame.

I love FPS Roguelikes. I bought this immediately upon seeing the name and enjoyed it quite a bit. The graphics are terrible but for a game striving to look and play like the DOS games of yore it did an alright job. I really, really did enjoy this game.

What a shame the game has been left to die by the developer in a state as buggy as a month-old pig carcass.

I spent $10 on a bug-ridden, abandoned mess with amazing potential. Do not make the same mistake I did. Rogue Shooter is abandonware.

Try and find a free version online if you really want to give this a go, but do not support developers who abandon their games after public release, it does NOT set a good precedent.

I absolutely love this. I will gladly buy a hundred DLCs to make it better and better. The game combines the best parts of oldschool shooters like DOOM and wolfenstein with the goofiness and roguelike-ness of dungeons of dredmor (another must-buy game on steam.) It provides a very good level of challenge where it keeps you on your toes but never seems unfair. The combat is skill oriented, just like classic shooters, and there are difficult choices to make in regards to things like spending money and which items to hold on to and which to discard. The perk system is actually quite neat, not gimmicky, and all round this is a hell of a lot of fun. My only 'complaint' such as it is would be that it could use some more visual content. As in, more room textures, more types of enemies, that sort of thing. Also, resolution settings would be a huuuuge bonus. Other than that, it's a brilliant piece of indie gaming fun that I'm certain I can sink a few hundred hours into. highly recommended! enjoy!

I've had this game a while and I'm giving a negative review based on the fact the last patch introduced a bug and about a year later it's still there because it has been abandoned. The game had been on Steam barely any time, and they took the money and ran.

Specifically, the bug I'm mentioning is that you have to redo all the gfx settings every time you start the game. These types of games are meant to be played for 15-30 minutes then you quit and do something else. This bug makes the "natural" way of playing this game more work to start up than it's worth to play.

The gameplay itself isn't too bad. I kinda like it, there's enough different classes that give varying equipment and abilites to keep it interesting for a while, I'd be playing more often if not for the bug. The movement is a floaty, but that's part of the "arcade style" of the game. A way to sell it positively would be to say combat "flows" well.

The enemy variety is good, as are the level conditions. The weapon variety as well is nice, and you'll develop favorites for different situations or enemies.

I'd recommend this game if not for its total abandonment and multiple standing "minor" bugs.
I notice it's only $4.99 so if having to reset gfx settings every time you start and having to watch not to upgrade your weapon too much don't phase you, It's fun for what it is, but... Buyer beware.

Surprisingly addictive and full of true 90's FPS charm, but holy hell does this game have some huge control issues. Enemies somehow manage to grapple onto you and stop you from moving, you get caught on walls all the time and there's loads of other cheap problems with the level design, or lack thereof. There's 100 or so floors and I can't imagine anyone beating them any time soon.

Hopefully they patch out the small bugs because this one has a lot of potential.

I want to like this game, as the gameplay itself is a lot of fun, but sadly it's so bug riddled that I can't actually play it. Graphically it is really bad to have invisible walls, objects, enemies, floors, and doors. Needless to say, this makes for a surreal and unplayable experience. The dev has dropped off the face of the Earth (and never put much effort into bug hunting while he was here), so it's a sour experience.

Simply put, try the demo first. There's a good chance that you can't actually play it. And even then, I'd recommend buying it on a heavy sale just in case.

Rogue Shooter: The Gamelike Letdown

Rogue Shooter = FPS Shooter + Great Humor + Neat Roguelike Aspects - Playability

This is just sad. I really wanted to like this game. Roguelikes are one of my favorite genres and this game just looks so very entertaining. Unfortunately... It wasn't.

This game has been ABANDONED.

There hasn't been an update in nearly a year. Now, if this simply meant a lack of new content that would be fine. The problem here is that this game is broken. Many players experience debilitating bugs, and I include myself amongst them. For my part, there seems to be some manner of absolutely unbearable mouse input lag. The game runs at a smooth 60fps just so long as I DON'T TOUCH THE MOUSE. If I do, I get the worst stutter I've ever seen. This is untenable for a first person shooter. No matter how I tweaked options and settings, nothing I did improved the situation.

Such a disappointment. The game is otherwise completely charming.

Buy if you...
  • Feel lucky, punk. Not everyone has bugs that render the game completely unplayable. You might be one of them. Kind of a gamble if you ask me.
  • Aren't lucky, but are a glutton for punishment. By all means, enjoy.

Don't buy...
  • If you have anything else better to spend your money on. I would rather buy tacos.
  • If you don't want to pay for abandonware.
The Bottom Line

I wish I could have played this game, but the bugs wouldn't let me do so tolerably. Perhaps someone out there might make a fan-made patch, or perhaps the developers will come back and fix it. Where did they go? Were they eaten by one of their summoned hippos? If I know anything about hippos, it's that they are hungry hungry, so this seems a likely probability.

If they emerge from the hippos digestive tract and still have enough of their fingers left to type, then I hope they will fix their game. I'd love to update my review at that time. Until then... I can't give the thumbs up on this one.

Very buggy title, with no real sign of the Devs wanting to fix them.

When it's working reliably though, the game is quite fun and has a very Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold camp-y feel to it.

UPDATE: Still a do-not-buy for the same reasons above.

This is a great example of the risk you take when you buy indie games. Don't worry, the game is completely functional (as far as I know).

RS:TFR (does an acronym go within another acronym?) was one of the relatively few games I voted for on Greenlight. It looked really interesting and I was excited for it to possibly be released. And then it was Greenlit, and came out soon after! Neat! However, it seemed rather bare-bones. It didn't have controller support. It didn't have a lot of enemies. The classes weren't balanced. The game didn't even seem balanced! Surely they'd add more classes, enemies, controller support, weapons, etc. later on, right?

They didn't, and they won't. The game has had technical patches, so it works. It's just not as much as I expected it to be, going in.

As for the game itself, it plays like Duke 3D in that you're only allowed to look left and right, not up or down. The levels are randomly generated hallways (with scenery and a theme). Enemies are two-dimensional. Walls are two-dimensional. The creatures and weapons are creative, both in design and strategy. It is a true roguelike in which you go through floor and floor until you reach the 100th (which I haven't achieved). Intel, a rare drop from any enemy, accumulates to unlock more classes, more perks, and more monster bios, which detail their strengths and weaknesses.

I'm not so thrilled about everything being two-dimensional and being locked into horizontal aiming. Sure, it's "old-school," but it's not really fun today. Controller support would be great for this title, but I guess it's just too much for the devs to implement. Also, the game was made to run at a much smaller resolution than 1920x1080 and just won't look well if you stretch it out. You can see this with the screenshots - your Steam screenshots end up as a tiny screenshot in the upper left corner of a black canvas. Also, well, you can see it in the art assets. Two-dimensional and low-res.

The game is fun, but it needs more love from the devs in terms of controller support, content, and maybe better resolution options. Since they're indie, I doubt this game will ever see another update - they've moved on. A good price to pay for this title would be $5.
